Disable authentication on report server


  • I have a report server (http://servername/reports). I can get access to everyone in the domain, BUT I would like to disable any kind of authentication. I need everyone get access to the reporting page with clicking on the link and without any user or pass. I also want my firefox/safari users to get access to the reporting page without entering any username/password. Is it possible?

  • Hi,

    Do you mean users can access the Report Manager successfully, but need to type in username and password? If not, please point out.

    Generally, in Internet Options of IE, we can set the User Authentication (at last) in Security Settings page, and select the option “Automation logon with current user name and password”. After that, when users access Report Manager, the browser will not ask for credential.

    Firefox also supports Negotiated, NTLM, Basic authentication schemes but Safari only supports the Basic. For more information about browser support, please refer to
